The Kingdom Within (2015)

Available worldwide

The film began as a response to a couple of evangelical Christian pastors referring to yoga as “demonic” and “against Christianity.” This film is a compilation of interviews from yogis, Christians, and scholars comparing these ancient spiritual systems, and why or why not they might have a compatible application.

The film explores many layers of inquiry behind yoga’s presence in America. Beyond the theology there is a need to answer the question: Is yoga just physical exercise? Several people from a variety of backgrounds chime in on this initial topic. If it’s just stretching, then it’s probably fine for people of other faiths to practice it. But if it’s a spiritual practice integrated in an ancient Indian philosophy, could it potentially conflict with Christian doctrine?

I am so grateful for the experience and the opportunity to watch such an amazing documentary!! I believe no one is exempt from the power of God! Yoga is a wonderful way to get you closer to God and so many other wonderful way to live life like Jesus did!

I think this film exemplifies Christ message beautifully. The ex-con yoga instructor seems to embody the genuine message of Christ better then any of the established church officials.
